“The Chain Gang” Performs at the 19th Global Leadership Award Dinner


Building a Smarter German-American Partnership

The Chain Gang formed in 1999, when all the band members were IBM employees and part of the Integrated Supply Chain organization. Thus, the band was fitting for the 19th Annual Global Leadership Award Dinner (GLAD), honoring Virginia M. Rometty, Chairman, President, and CEO of IBM. Playing their specialty, popular tunes from the 50s to 80s, the Chain Gang brought dinner-goers to the dance floor and made for a wonderful evenings entertainment.
